I'm looking for an audio file equivalent to ImageMagick's identify command.
For example, with
identify, I can get brief information about a bunch of images:
% identify b* banner1.jpg JPEG 134x614 134x614+0+0 8-bit DirectClass 38.4kb banner.jpg JPEG 772x307 772x307+0+0 8-bit DirectClass 37.5kb bg2.jpg JPEG 103x1500 103x1500+0+0 8-bit DirectClass 43kb bg_control_nav.png PNG 13x39 13x39+0+0 8-bit DirectClass 1.73kb bg_direction_nav.png PNG 104x52 104x52+0+0 8-bit DirectClass 3.3kb
I would like to get similar information about my audio files.
My eventual goal is to create a script to go through my whole mp3 library and identify those ripped at lower bitrates and then use that data to re-rip my CDs (or purchase better quality versions from Amazon or iTunes).
